Lou Reed Dead at 71
I don't know what to say. He was such a hero of mine.
Back in the mid 90s, when I was still married, Val and I went to see him, here in Denver.
after he walked out on stage, Val leaned over and asked me, "Why are they booing him?"
I pointed out to her that the crowd was not booing, they were chanting, "Lou, Lou, Lou..."
The guy was a musical genius and had a huge influence on my songwriting and delivery.
Lou, Lou, Lou, Lou...
